Another Fantastic book by Colin Mcnaughton, a cleverly illustrated colourful book in simple rhyming verse suitable for boys or girls of all ages, just the right length not too long or short. Children will love all the fun brightly coloured alien characters. An ideal first read that children will will want to read over and over. Entertaining read for adults too, Little ones will want to join in when they hear "The Aliens are coming!" My children voted this a top read 5 out of 5! And can't wait to get more Colin McNaughton books.We're Off to Look for Aliens
I used this book with Year 1 children, they soon began to join in!! The children talked about the story all day and many activities span from this. The illustrations are fantastic and the children enjoyed making their own Alien paintings and describing them. A must for every child.
This brilliant book is sure to grab the attention of each child/parent/teacher that reads it. It is particularly good for children who need help with onset and rime during early phonics education. You can't help being amazed at the drawings and the alien's funny antics described so well by McNaughton.
Kids up to 8 will love this book and will read it over and over. It's very funny! This book was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal. McNaughton goes to town inventing weird-looking aliens with ever more disgusting habbits. "They come from planets near and far - Some big, some small, some quite bizarre. Twinkle, Twinkle little star - the aliens are coming!"
